Singers of all levels of experience are welcome to join in this popular course.

We will explore the historical, literary and geographical background of songs originating from different parts of Ireland. The class will also include an introduction to basic singing techniques, as well as an overview of styles of traditional singing, such as ornamentation and phrasing. Beginners welcome!

Songwriting 'Boot Camp'
With ASCAP Award-winner, John Munnelly, Thursdays, 7 pm – 9 pm
$170 general / $140 member     

6 weekly sessions beginning Thursday, April 13th, 2017
*Please note this course is 6 sessions.

Brooklyn based Songwriter, John Munnelly, will take students on a journey through the basics of songwriting, explaining the use of melody, song structure, rhyme and rhythm to create contrast, energy and motion. Classes will involve discussions and tips on writing, inspiration, technology, recording & performance. Students will try out practical exercises in class and at home.  The aim is to break down the songwriting mystique into approachable parts demonstrating the 'how to' in order to give attendees the confidence, tools and encouragement needed to write and finish their own song.

Attendees will require: a pen and paper. Use of an instrument is not mandatory though some knowledge of an instrument or some musical theory will add to the participants’ enjoyment and learning.
